In your life, you have moments with many other people, and you may just smile then pass them, or you might talk to them. When talking to them, you can say the right or wrong things, but anything you say could have a possibility to hurt them or impact them in a way that they could never think of. So the next time when you are talking to people, think of something kind, smart, or even just a simple,"Hi, how are you today". You might make a persons day.
There are different types of moments in your life when you can't see straight or you feel sick to your stomach because you are missing something/someone so much but there is nothing you can do about it and you just cry and cry. You may cry each step of the way but you are human. Since you are human, you have the ability to just have enough to make it through, just a little bit more and you can make it. Through out your life you will have bad moments but you have the good moments, and those moments are memories that you will hold forever.
